If you’re a healthcare practitioner, this program offers you a unique opportunity for clinical education that integrates Chinese acupuncture with modern neurophysiology and evidence-based medicine.
This is the only and the longest running master degree at the entry level to acupuncture in Australia. The program was developed 16 years ago to meet the increasing demand for qualified acupuncturists. It incorporates Western medicine diagnosis with Chinese medicine theory for the clinical management of various conditions.
Workshops are run to provide you with a firm theoretical basis, and clinical practice is incorporated to enhance skills and learning.
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice.
You will be suitably prepared for private or group practice.
